This is a guest post written by Paramdeep from Pristine. Chandoo.org runs Financial Modeling School program in partnership with Pristine Careers. Visit Financial Modeling School to learn more and sign-up for our newsletter.
It’s been long time since we interacted on Chandoo.org. Actually I was very busy teaching the 105 awesome students for financial modeling in Excel. We all worked together to create some easy and some complex financial models. I found the journey to be quite exciting and enriching (From the feedback that I got, my students too didn’t find it bad either )
During the interaction, I found that a lot of students were looking for financial modeling around the project financing as well. So we thought why not introduce financial modeling for project finance.
In this post I will speak about some of the key aspects of a project finance model and why it can be different from modeling a normal company.Continue »

Sometime in November, I got an interesting E-mail from a gentleman named Guru. The title said “Excel Workshop in Maldives”. In the email, Guru introduced himself and asked me if I can come to Maldives to conduct few Excel workshops for companies and individuals.
I usually neglect such mails as many times the actual training (or big consulting assignment etc.) will not happen. So I replied to him giving my number and asked him to call me. I was surprised to receive his call. After talking awhile, it was clear that Guru is tenacious and would not take No for an answer.
So we set things in motion and thanks to Guru’s perseverance, I ended up boarding a flight to Male on 22nd of January. This is a story of what happened next…,Continue »

Stage is almost set for my first international Excel workshop. That is right. I am doing a physical excel workshop on Intermediate & Advanced Excel at Maldives between January 23 and 27, 2011. I feel quite excited to do this.
While I derive immense pleasure and learn lots of new things by running Excel School, there is one nagging problem. It is an online program, so the scope of physical interaction with students is limited.
Doing a physical class is a great way to meet new people, gather material for new content, get ideas, learn new things and get challenged. And that is why I am looking forward to do my workshop in Maldives next week.
If you would like to join this workshop: Please call Mr. Guru Raj, Training Manager at IIPD, Malè. His number is +960 7625338. (Workshop agenda)
Because I will be busy with the workshop next week, I will not be able to post much on the blog. I have requested Hui, our guest author to keep you all engaged. So expect some delicious stuff from him while I am away.Continue »
